Boca municipal course may be sold this month
Boca Raton will likely take a swing at selling its municipal golf course this month.
The course, which ironically isn’t located within city limits, has attracted interest from about a dozen developers. The city didn’t solicit the proposals, but with the amount of land available for purchase dwindling, golf courses have become a popular target for developers.
If the city goes ahead with selling the land, the project will have to be approved by Palm Beach County officials because the land is situated in county limits.
All proposals from interested developers were due to the city last month. Council members are slated to make a decision on what project, if any, they are interested in moving forward with on Nov. 22. City staff estimate the approval process could take anywhere from 18-24 months to complete if council members select a project.
